Who is Indi?
India (16), who lives in Whale Beach, Sydney, was born with mild cerebral palsy and a brain injury caused by a stroke at birth. During her short life, she has had to overcome many health and learning challenges. She and her mum Tania, however, have embraced as opportunities for growth.
The Dog Project was one such opportunity. It is intended to assist India’s learning, as well as her ability to interact with her community and environment. Every Wednesday for the past year, India, Elle and the Project team, have interviewed and photographed a wide range of dogs and their owners from the Northern Beaches and beyond. The collection of images and stories burgeons with love and connection from everybody involved.
Every Wednesday for the past twelve months, India and the very special local photographer, Elle Hall, and a team of other wonderful supporters, have met and captured dogs of all shapes and sizes, with owners to match. The growing collection of images and stories is burgeoning with love, connection and sheer joy from everybody involved. It’s taken a lot longer than planned, However, throughout Indi has shown such growth and commitment to the project that it may continue. Each week, she’s focused and excited to interact, interview, be inspired by, in awe of and grateful for, each and every person and furry friend she meets.
